Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings Explained

The EN Rating scale is a scientific test to determine the warmth of a sleeping bag. The test produces a Lower rating (for male sleepers) and a Comfort rating (for female sleepers). Both are listed in the features table on the product page.

A unisex sleeping bag with a Lower limit of 23ºF means a man should be comfortable down to air temperatures of 23ºF. The same bag will also have a Comfort limit, in the realm of 32°F, so a woman would be comfortable down to an air temperature of 32ºF. These ratings require a sleeping mat with an R-Value appropriate for expected ground temperatures – without this, the sleeping bag itself is unlikely to keep the sleeper warm enough.

A variety of factors impact sleeping bag warmth - the above temperatures are merely guidelines, not guarantees. It’s important to think of a sleeping bag, an appropriately insulating sleeping pad and a liner as a sleep system. For example - if you plan on sleeping in nighttime air temperatures of 27ºF / -3°C, choose a bag with a gender-appropriate rating of 23°F / -5°C, plus a sleeping mat with an R-Value of 2.5 to 3, and consider a Reactor thermal liner.

Description

An Ember quilt can be an ideal option for bikepackers, ultralight hikers and travelers.

A well-constructed quilt means freedom: Freedom from the weight of a sleeping bag zipper; freedom from the constrictive shape that comes with some sleeping bags.

The Ember™ Series takes the simplicity of the quilt concept a step further. The high quality 850+ loft Ultra-Dry Down and 10 D outer / 7D inner shell material mean incredibly lightweight and tiny packed size. The snap-on attachment straps keep your quilt located on your sleeping mat, while the drawcord base of the 40°F and 30°F give the Ember a ‘shape-shifter’ function: wider at the base for more freedom of movement when it’s warm, snugged down when it’s cooler.

Is the Ember Quilt…?

  • Suitable for cold-weather use? The warmest Ember 20°F has a sewn-in foot box, and is designed for temperatures a little under freezing (with an appropriate sleeping mat). Quilts do not have hoods – you will need a warm hat on chilly nights.

  • Rated using the EN temperature test protocol? No. The EN test does not apply to quilts; so not quilt on the market will have an EN rating. We refer instead to a ‘lowest comfortable temperature based on comparable Sea to Summit sleeping bags.

  • Able to be coupled with another Ember Quilt? Yes. The press-studs along the edge of the quilt (usually used for the sleeping mat attachment straps) can be used to join two Embers together.
